    The new Ka-Bar 5300 Gunny Knife is a nice looking blade. Is it gust me or do you see a bit of The Brute style when you look at this?

    The Long out of production Brute might also be less expensive...… :0

    Almost looks like a brute with an angled tweener handle.

    Not a fan.
    No disrespect obviously, but the knife design is horrible in my opinion.
    I believe Ka-bar can do better.

    It looks like something that isn't going to be Used....
    I like my knives VERY "boring looking".
    I guess That doesn't sell? idk...
    Kinda bothers me, that I have a good dozen knives that I want to spend money on..... and know body makes them!

    *back in the early nineties That was the same reason I started making Beer.....haha
    I think I already know the answer to this.

    Did somebody say smatchet? The tip reminds me of one.

    Honestly, it has about as much appeal as all the zombie knives did.

    I respectfully disagree with several of you on this thread. I really like how this knife looks and think it will be quite functional. I can’t wait to get it. :)

    Pretty neat blade. I personally think this needs cut off and the choil removed.

    A poor attempt at doctoring the photo.
